1.The GC2 Golf Launch Monitor
The GC2 is the all-time best-selling high-end launch monitor under $10000. GC2 is from Foresight Sports, which is one of the leading golf launch monitor makers pioneered in the industry. Whether it’s a practice or a real play, GC2 with its Stereoscopic high-speed camera system will capture the ball performance by 10000 fps. The stereoscopic lens is more like the human eye, it locates and locks the ball.
GC2 can be easily ported from indoor to outdoor. It has internal accelerometers, which can also be known as self-leveling technology. Hence, there is no need for calibration, it can adjust itself to various platforms. Moreover, this GC2 will deliver accurate data on every surface. For that, the device needs no marked balls.
It doesn’t need an external mobile device to show your shot results. All the GC2 are equipped with LCD monitors. But, you can still connect this device to your laptops, mobiles, or iPads through Bluetooth and USB Mini B.
Made with a diecast aluminum casing, this GC2 is a rugged launch monitor that can protect itself from unexpected shock. This device can run up to 8 hours straight, which is longer than most of the launch monitors in the market.
This GC2 launch monitor can only collect the ball data such as ball flight, angle, carry distance, and ball spin. But it can be equipped with HMT (Head Measurement Technology) device to collect the club data.
All the refurbished launch monitors are certified by Foresight sports and work just out of the store.
